Shahs of Sunset star Asa Soltan Rahmati has given birth to her first child with longtime partner Jermaine Jackson Jr., a baby boy named Soltan Jackson.
Asa shared the wonderful news on Instagram, writing alongside a photo of the couple, “Lovers. We gave birth to our precious son on January 20th 2017. His name is Soltan Jackson and we are completely in Love with him.”
She also opened up to E! News about her first days of motherhood. “The past three days since his birth have been the most magical days of both our lives,” she shared with E! News exclusively. “Jermaine and I can’t stop staring at Soltan’s beautiful face, feeling eternally grateful.”
Shahs of Sunset co-star Mike Shouhed is equally as excited for the new addition, telling E! News exclusively, “I’m so excited, our little Shahs baby is here! I can’t wait to meet him. I’m sure he’s beautiful. He’s half Persian and half African American, so he’s going to look good.”
“Asa is very protective, so I’m sure she’s going to take some time to be one with her family, but as soon as she allows visitors, I’m going to be first in line. I’m ready to spoil him,” he gushed.
The Bravo reality star recently posted a photo of herself on Instagram at 9 months and 3 days pregnant and thanked fans for their love and support.
“Feeling an abundance of love and bathing in absolute gratitude. Thank you all for your incredibly beautiful messages and well wishes. You warm our hearts.”
And while Asa has been documenting her pregnancy on social media, she’s been coy about the sex of her first child.
That said, she did tell one fan on Twitter that she and Jermaine had a “few names” for their little bundle of joy in mind, but they were “waiting to meet the baby to actually name him or her.”
Asa, who has seen her professional career and relationships with her friends live out on the hit Bravo show Shahs of Sunset, has kept her love life largely out of the public eye.
Once again, Asa hopped on Twitter to explain to reasoning behind why fans shouldn’t expect to see her relationship with Jermaine on television any time soon.
“He is private and it’s his choice. I love and respect his decision 100%.”
Well, at least for now, we’ll settle on some good old-fashioned family photos on Instagram.
